My 5000 TQ was leaking from around the fuse block!!! You can loosen the
screws holding it to the firewall and lay in some calk. I went nuts for 2
months trying to find a source, and that was the one. Was having the same
symptoms as you, wet drivers matt. Also worse when I parked downhill.

I cleaned the HVAC drain out a few weeks ago.  That was when I first 
discovered the footwell was wet, and C.E.L. would stay on while the 
car was running.  The codes have been cleared and there is now plastic 
covering the ECU and connector.  

Sunday night I parked facing downhill, it rained hard and the floor got wet.
Last night I parked facing uphill and the floor stayed dry.  Yes it
rained heavily here in Pittsburgh two nights in a row.  Anyway, the 
recirc flap sounds like a good place to start.
